This mostly true story of the making of Psycho shows how Hollywood's ultimate director bucked the system to make a screen version of a lurid horror novel, by mortgaging his home and shooting with a low-budget crew. Featuring Anthony Hopkins as the title character, Helen Mirren as his shadow collaborator Alma, and Scarlet Johansson as Janet Leigh, Hitchcock is a perfect holiday movie.
"An exuberant film about moviemaking. Hopkins and Mirren create a vital portrait of a unique showbiz marriage. Hitchcock serves up a slice of cinema history so compelling it nails a reality beyond the details." (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly)
